|This book reminded me why I love regency romance. It’s been ages since I’ve picked up one!! Now I want to read the rest of The Duchess Society and see what happens to everyone.|
Hildegard Templeton, lovingly known as Hildy is a matchmaker for young women looking to make a suitable match in society. Most of the time it’s for a title or money. Her latest couple is Mattie and Toby. Yet once she meets Tobias Streeter there is an undercurrent there. Everything about him calls to her. Alas, he is marrying Mattie. Spending alone time with him, Hildy gets to know him. Know that he is kind, generous, and many more things. Things that endear him to her. It can’t happen he is marrying another.
The Rogue King, as Tobias Streeter is known is falling head over heels for Hildy. She tortures his days and nights – in the most delicious ways. What can he offer her? He has no title, he’s a bastard of a viscount. He’d lower her standing in the ton. There was no way he could marry Mattie, NONE. It might get them both what they want, but it wasn’t what they needed. He needed Hildy, his Hildy girl. Would she except being his kept mistress? Would she accept him?
This is a beautiful tale of two people destined for each other, they don’t know it. Neither one thinks they are good enough or deserving of the other person when clearly they are a match made in the stars. This is a well-written tale. Spicy and romantic at the same time. I can’t wait to read more about the Duchess Society!
